Notts County team of the decade

So, there we have it. Another decade as a Notts fan is all-but over. It’s never dull at Meadow Lane but, even by typical standards, 2010-2019 has been particularly eventful. One promotion (in the first year of the decade), two relegations, three different owners and, in a decade that started in massive uncertainty as itContinue reading “Notts County team of the decade”

For the Moany, Not for the Few

Social Media has had a few swipes taken at it recently, the most high profile being at Arsenal Fan TV (AFTV) cited as a major player in the eventual sacking of Unai Emery by club legend Ray Parlour, who branded them ‘Arsenal Fail TV’ and accused them of thriving on the club’s on-field problems toContinue reading “For the Moany, Not for the Few”

Not Just Broken Wheelbarrows

Counting the emotional cost of Notts’ takeover… Takeovers are a cold and calculated process. Suddenly, the thing that is invaluable to you and your fellow fans is being weighed and measured in terms that are devastatingly commercial and clinical: assets, debts, land ownership. There’s something distinctly immoral to it all. Like taking Grandad’s war medalsContinue reading “Not Just Broken Wheelbarrows”

From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part three

Read Part One here Read Part Two here 8. Bulk buying in January It may seem harsh to pinpoint a transfer window that did also see a number of good additions arrive at the club, but Neal Ardley put all his eggs for survival in a January-shaped basket and, ultimately, Notts failed so questions haveContinue reading “From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part three”

From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part two

Read part one here 2. A pointless pre-season Looking back, it seems incredible that Notts started as bookies favourites for the League Two title, given pre-season results had given such little room for optimism. Alan Hardy had made a big play on getting players through the door early – more on that unnecessary recruitment driveContinue reading “From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part two”

From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part one

Even for Notts County, it is quite spectacular to be relegated in a season you started as the bookies favourites to win the entire division. It is truly remarkable to spend upwards of £500,000 on transfer fees alone to improve a squad that had just finished 5th…and then end-up 23rd, deservedly down having been inContinue reading “From title favourites to non-league: 12 reasons Notts County’s season went so badly wrong – part one”

Raw emotions on a dark day

Long-suffering Notts County fan Adrian Rawden delivers his summary of a difficult day… both on and off the pitch. It’s Sunday morning and, as with most mornings this last few months, Iʼm lying awake bleary eyed checking Twitter after another loss – or, rather, capitulation. Notts County had been relegated after a 3-1 loss awayContinue reading “Raw emotions on a dark day”
